Presbyterian Pantry

Presbyterian Pantry’s Mission

To provide food and various sundries for personal hygiene to any individual regardless of age, sex, race, health, religious affiliation or economic condition


All Are Welcome!

Serving guests in the near West side of Green Bay on the 2nd and 4th Tuesday of each month from 10am to noon (with the exception of Holidays), the Presbyterian Food Pantry of Green Bay is a joint effort among First United Presbyterian Church – De Pere, and Wequiok Presbyterian Church and First Presbyterian Church of Green Bay. The Pantry was formerly a part of First Pres of Green Bay, and while it has become a stand-alone 501(c)3 (charity), able to accept monetary donations as well as food from any source, First Pres of Green Bay continues to house the Pantry. All three churches continue to support the work being done at our location with volunteers and financial support through in-kind donations.

Food donations can be dropped off on Tuesdays and Wednesdays at the church office between 9:30 am and 2 pm. For those who prefer to make a monetary donation, checks sent to the office should be made out to Presbyterian Pantry of Green Bay, or donations on our website should have the Pantry noted as the fund to which you are donating.

“The Pantry is run and staffed entirely with volunteers. Held every 2nd and 4th Tuesday of the month from 10:00 a.m. to noon. We depend completely on donations and are very appreciative of our donors, as well as our reciprocal relationship with many other area Pantries.”

Former Pantry Board President Mary Ginnebaugh shares

The Pantry Board and other Pantry volunteers are dedicated to helping our neighbors with hunger issues, and First Presbyterian Church is committed to assisting in the effort by providing the space required as well as monetary assistance.
